Pictures of a huge crash are being shared on various Corvette facebook groups got our attention tonight! The pics show an Arctic White Corvette Z06 that went off-road and landed (or came to a rest) sideways on the front porch of a home in West Virginia.
The good news is that the driver was able to crawl out of the crashed Corvette Z06 and was talking on the phone when emergency workers arrived.
The accident happened somewhere in the vicinity of Enterprise or Shinnston West Virgina based on the comments. The pics were posted on Facebook on Sunday by Thomas Minnear who posted the photos along with the caption that reads “I’d say his angel was riding shotgun !!”
Yes, the C7 Corvette does do a great job in protecting its occupants, but let’s not kid ourselves. Speed kills, and the driver was lucky as most of the damage to the car is on the passenger side, including the door being ripped off and the passenger seat lying outside the car. Had this driver had a passenger with him, the crash would have most likely resulted in a fatality.
Additional comments in the post reveal those close to the driver who said the Corvette Z06 cost $117,000. From the pics, we see it was a Z06 with the Z07 Performance package.
Many commentators are also pointing to the summer-only Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires that do appear to have seen better days.
Check out these photos and remember to not exceed the limits of the car or the road the next time you’re out having fun driving your Corvette!
